The Shadow Out of Time Manga Ends

The December 2018 issue of Kadokawa’s Monthly Comic Beam magazine has published the last chapter of Gou Tanabe’s The Shadow Out of Time (Toki o Koeru Kage) manga. The manga is an adaptation of author H.P. Lovecraft’s novella of the same name.

The story focuses on Nathaniel Wingate Peaslee, a professor of Political Economy at the fictional Miskatonic University. He believes he is suffering from possession by “Yithians,” as he constantly lapses into episodes where he views the history of a seemingly alien civilization. His further research into Earth’s ancient past only compounds his horror as he discovers that he is not the only one who has suffered from “possession.”

Tanabe launched the manga in Monthly Comic Beam on April 12, 2018. Kadokawa published the manga’s first compiled book volume on August 9, 2018.
